iPhone 2.0 still a no go for me


A 199.99 iPhone is still not worth my money. Apple fan boys no need to send me your hate mail or even long essays on how the iPhone is an evolution of a mobile device.

Apple has done an awesome job in creating a solid hardware and great software roadmap. The platform that they have created will take mobile computing to the next level. I can not wait for the day where I can take my desktop with me through the use of my phone. Although, I feel we are almost their and the iPhone will likely be the device to bring that to me. I am still not motivated to leave my HTC behind.

I only have two reasons why I am not on the iPhone. The first one may be silly but how can you not have copy and paste. I mean GPS is great but why can I not copy a url and then paste it in safari?

If you know for a fact that you can cut and paste please correct me.

The other silly reason is Flash support. The more and more I use my HTC 8925 with a hacked flash player the more I need it. I mean I can watch uStream broadcasts now and enjoy twitlive.tv on my phone from anywhere even when in the passenger seat on the 101.

But at 199.99 I do recommend the iPhone for people who don’t care about flash or cut and paste. The iPhone is still the best way to combine a phone and a solid mp3 player.

But hey if Apple wants to send me a special developer version where I can cut and paste and view Ustream please contact me.

Good times.

      I find this blog very interesting, i will be here everyday till now. Greetings

    • Nice blog, i have added it to my favourites, greetings

    • Somewhat agreed. And I’ll explain why I’m leaning on it, and why I’m opposed to it. I’ll further my explanation in my blog when I launch my site sometime this month, but here’s a brief overview:

      The iPhone is perfect for those that have had a lesser of a phone before. Maybe up to the Motorola Razr or an LG phone or something, you’re going to LOVE the iPhone. It does [almost] everything that you’d expect from a phone. If you’re looking for a phone, and not toooo much more, and you don’t mind simple features, then perfect. Get the iPhone.

      The iPhone will disappoint those who have previously had a smart phone or HTC or BlackBerry, etc… Although there may seem to be more promises of more features and more apps on the iPhone than a BB, the reliability of a smart phone can’t be touched. Copy and paste. MMS. Video. You can hack your own phone without voiding warranty. Expandable memory. I dunno, the list goes on and on.

      I’m caught up (currently own a BB Pearl), and my next phone is going to be between the BB Bold or iPhone. Not sure yet. We shall see.
